    Question for an admin.....It seems the new posts button only shows any posts since your last visit. Most other forum software will also display threads that dont have new content, but that you haven't yet viewed .

    Is this possibly a feature of the forum software here, but just hasn't been enabled?

    Am not an administrator, but it is a good point. For me personally, I would not like to have threads displayed again because I had not viewed it the last time. I like the format exactly as it is now. I wonder how others feel.

    If you go to quick links and pick "today's posts" you'll find what you're looking for.

    I like how it works now. If I didn't view a thread on the last visit, usually it means I didn't intend to.

    I'm not the OP, but thanks for that. I will use that feature a lot.

    I am not aware of a way to make that happen with this particular software. Sorry.

    That's what I do like about this forum. If I didn't look at it the first time, I don't intend to look at it anyway.

    Not quite as good, but will certainly do the trick, thanks!

    I've just seen it on some other forums....after you get past the new posts, you'll see "These posts are not new to you, but have unread entries..."

    I was just finding if I come here when I get home, then an hour later, I couldn't see any new posts, but "today's posts" will be decent enough.

    Thanks everyone!

    Now this is weird:

    "The threads below have not been updated since your last visit or since forums have been marked read."

    I just saw that on this forum! But, it doesn't show up unless you first click show all today's posts. Very strange. So it must be either a default system setting, or default user setting to hide non-new but unread threads.

    New Post----Hello! What part of this do you not understand? I am not interested in plundering thru numerous old posts to see the new and latest posts. Thats what I like about this site---when I view site I want NEW POST!
    If it ain't broke-don't fix it!
